Free her and sneak out while the townspeople are occupied, or wipe them out and remove the threat to Cyrodiil. The people of Cheydinhal and Bruma speak in hushed tones about a monster who hunts in the wilderness of Dive Rock.
If you go nan investigate as all good Heroes should, you'll come across a small camp and a journal. The journal tells the tale of Agnar the Unwavering whose home in Solstheim, Thirsk, had previously been marauded by a beast called Udyrfrykte which had been given a dirt nap by a passing adventurer actually the player in the Bloodmoon expansion for Morrowind.
Agnar and his wife had travelled from Solstheim to end the mother of Udyrfrykte, the Matron, but after Ragnar's wife is ended in the battle, Agnar flees and writes in his journal that he must attack the Matron to maintain his title as The Unwavering. Well, Agnar, wavering might have been the right call: you find his corpse not far from the Matron's lair.
Unfortunately, not a cave that has been turned on its side, the Sideways Cave has a very intriguing secret provided you hunt down all the tablets located inside.
The cave, littered with skeletons, eventually gives way to an unexpected secret: ancient ruins. The ancient civilization unique to Cyrodiil, the Ayleid, once had a city on the same spot as the now horizontally challenged cave. During the course of their expansion, they uncovered a shrine to Meridia, the Daedric Prince, and disturbed it in some way.
Meridia, in true Daedric fashion, buried the city in the earth. Like many of these locations, Sideways Cave appears in Elder Scrolls Online and gives up a bit more information about the former residents, mainly that they were worshippers of Molag Bal.
I absolutely love this quest, I think it's one of the most unique RPG storylines ever and it's so easy to miss that I didn't find it until my second playthrough of Oblivion way back in In the city of Cheydinhal, you'll pick up a quest called A Brush With Death, in which a woman is distraught over the disappearance of her husband, a famous local painter.
Go into the painter's studio and you'll find his latest work, a beautiful landscape. Using bottles of turpentine that you're given by the painter, you can defeat the various 'painted trolls' that guard the watercolour landscape. The trolls also drop little globs of painted troll fat, a unique item that does nothing but I carried around with me for the rest of the game.
I guess it's not surprising that, given that Oblivion is one of the most direct translations of traditional Western European fantasy in the Elder Scrolls universe, that there would be a Unicorn somewhere in the game world.
What isn't as surprising is what a tough beast this majestic lil guy can be! Another objective of a Daedric Prince, this time Hircine, the Hero is tasked with ending the unique, beautiful creature for its horn. The beast can be ridden, and it's as fast as the other white horses in the game, but the one thing setting it apart from the other horses is that it will absolutely wreck anything that comes at it in it its pristine grove, including you.
You can even use it to fight battles for you, if you kite the ivory white dream horse to dangerous areas. Every Elder Scrolls game has a sort of running internal competition: which of the option Guild quest lines will be the best, and will it be better than the main story? Morrowind's Noble House quests won that one hands down, while Skyrim's Thieves Guild plot was a highlight. For my money, the best questline in the whole franchise is the Dark Brotherhood story from Oblivion.
The Player is invited to a party full of enemies of the client. It's a murder mystery party, so the guests are suspicious of everyone in the best way, but no one suspects that a real Dark Brotherhood assassin is among them.
The door locks behind you, so there's no reason not to blast everyone with Destruction magic from the word go, but it's more fun to play along and pick everyone off one-by-one. The character of Lucien Lachance, head of the Dark Brotherhood in Cyrodil, introduce himself to you and catapults himself into the pantheon of great Elder Scrolls characters.
While gaining admittance to the assassin's guild in Skyrim is a relatively complicated affair, prospective knives in the dark are required to demonstrate only one thing to be approached by the Brotherhood: end someone in cold blood.
The first time you sleep after offing someone for no reason at all, you'll be approached by Lucien in the night and given an address- a run-down old house in Cheydinhal, which is the Brotherhood's base of operations. Membership in the Brotherhood has many perks, the best one being the use of Shadowmere- the fastest, toughest horse in the game.
Ah, Nirnroot, who could forget The Elder Scrolls' dumbest, neverending questline? Someone in the office at Bethesda must have been aware of how annoying it was going to try to spot the lil waterside aloe plants, because just north of the 'S' in Skingrad on your map , there is an absolutely colossal, man-sized Nirnroot just jutting out of the ground screaming at anything that gets near. Skooma is the Elder Scrolls heavy-handed metaphor for the epidemics of the world.
This maybe goes a touch too far with its emphasis on the 'beast' races of the world —the Khajiit and Argonian— being hooked on the stuff. The fact that the addictive drink is manufactured by the Khajit is maybe a bit insensitive and on-the-nose considering what Skooma is a metaphor for, but we can't expect our fantasy RPG social commentary to be too subtle, now can we?
The skooma den is in Bravil, across from the Fighter's Guild, and in a pretty sad bit of environmental storytelling, the player can steal all the skooma they went form the junkies inside without any of the reporting the theft.
If you're roleplaying as a high-functioning moon sugar addict, this is a good place to get your fix. Being a goblin in the Elder Scrolls must be tough. While the Orcs have been elevated into full playable-race respect, the little goblins are often just used as cannon fodder at the beginning of the game, then quickly vanish underneath the game's increasing difficulty, never to be seen again.
It's no wonder that some of them will turn to drink to pass the tie in their weird little caves. There are a few examples of drunken goblins in Cyrodiil, but my favourite is in a cave behind a waterfall way out to the west of the map. You'll find a goblin lying against a chest on his back, with empty bottles all around him.
Poor fella didn't know what hit him. I mentioned this in one of my other Elder Scrolls lists but it's too much of a classic not to include again. While classes such as Battlemage and Healer specialize in spell-casting, all races and classes can cast some spells.
A minor Restore health and a minor Fireball spell are learned by each race at the game's beginning. Spells can be created at an Altar of Spellmaking. Only upon gaining access to the Arcane University or employing the use of the Wizard's Tower official plug-in can one create spells. A craftsman must learn a specific spell quality i. Fire damage or Water Breathing before it can be crafted into a spell. Detect Life. Spell Absorption. Reflect Damage. Reflect Spell. The mysteries of magic are slowly revealing themselves to you.
You are now an Apprentice of Mysticism and can cast Apprentice level Mysticism spells. You are now a Journeyman of Mysticism and can cast Journeyman level Mysticism spells.
You are now an Expert of Mysticism and can cast Expert level Mysticism spells. You are now a Master of Mysticism and can cast Master level Mysticism spells.
